The 2017 Rookie of the Year indicated that he was willing to change positions to accommodate a player of Harper's caliber in the team as he is certain that a former MVP will certainly make the team better. What I have not, and will not accept is the thought of Bryce Harper as a Yankee.
"I think our team is pretty much set", he said. "Wherever he wants to play".
One of those players is Aaron Judge of the Yankees. In addition to the Chicago White Sox, Philadelphia Phillies, San Diego Padres and Washington Nationals, MLB Network's Jon Heyman reports there are at least four other teams interested in Harper's services. The 2016 National League MVP would give San Francisco the power bat they have long craved and, at 26, Harper is young enough for the Giants to build around long term.
"I really love the depth that we have been able to add and feel like in a lot of ways we're a complete team right now and have a chance to go out and do something special, which we get a chance to start next week". But I don't know.
Ringrose and Toner ruled out of Ireland’s clash with Scotland
Both men were substituted during the England defeat with Ringrose suffering a hamstring injury and Toner aggravating an ankle. Leinster lock Toner's injury concern could dent Ireland's already depleted second-row stocks still further.
"As the market evolves, there might be guys that you had kind of questioned or doubted the feasibility of at one point that you now circled back on", Zaidi said. Harper gives the Yankees some additional options in the outfield and perhaps a full-time slot for Giancarlo Stanton at DH, a position held mostly by him previous year except for his 37 games in the outfield. He also reiterated his confidence in the squad and believes they already have what it takes to probably challenge for a championship this coming season.
We're into February, and Bryce Harper has yet to find a new home. "You look at the moves we've made this winter, it's hard to deny that we haven't significantly improved our club".
"That's more a question for (GM) Brian (Cashman)", the Yankees manager added.
